Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V346
Summary:
Certain passenger vehicles fail to comply with requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 104, "Windshield Wiping and Washing Systems." These vehicles have a wiper system microprocessor that is susceptible to voltage transients, which can cause a "latch-up" condition in the system controller. If microprocessor "latch-up" occurs, the customer will not be able to operate the system in both the low-speed and high-speed modes required by the standard.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor cover, which contains the microprocessor. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during December 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300.
